Improving Diagnostic Testing and Interpretation of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

Speakers

Abstract

Diagnosis and management of CKD requires a spectrum of diagnostic tests to not only diagnose kidney function but also determine the status of other complications due to CKD, including creatinine, BUN, phosphorous, calcium, intact PTH, vitamin D, cystatin C, urinary albumin, urinalysis, EPO, and cardiac markers. In order to best assist physicians in the management of CKD, it is important that the laboratory is well versed in the specific tests used, improvements made to tests over time, and opportunities for improvement. Clinicians should know how to use tests appropriately in patient treatment across the continuum of CKD care.

Learning Objectives 

  1. Understand improvements in CKD diagnostic testing and also examine other opportunities for analytical improvement focusing on the measurement of PTH, vitamin D compounds, and bone markers. 
  2. Review case studies demonstrating the clinical application of these tests for patient management across the spectrum of CKD and ESRD.
